Chapter 8: What is the agenda for cultural economics?

Samuel Cameron


This chapter seeks to identify where there are risks of stagnation in the field and where there is scope for progress. Prospects for more cross-boundary work with sports economics and media economics are reviewed. A precautionary overview of possible future use of meta-analysis is given where some difficulties, specific to cultural economics, are enumerated. The potential for more qualitiative work is reviewed with reference to the use of fully structured case studies. The chapter moves on to comment on the further development of the burgeoning work related to happiness or subjective well-being (SWB) in cultural economics. This is concretized in a discussion of an innovative cultural subsidy policy in China.
